Here we go...
We've spent the last few days in and around Thurso, exploring Caithness and Orkney, but can't put it off any longer. Tomorrow night's accomodation is not in Thurso, so we'd better get the bikes out!
Tomorrow, we'll be heading out to Duncansby Head (the "pointy end") to start the ride, and have about 50 miles to cover on our first day. Easing in "gently"...
Mum's got the route sorted for her vital role as support crew/team driver, and even has a co-driver/navigator!

Big thank you to everyone who's sponsored us for this crazy journey. We've already raised over £1000 (inc. giftaid) for our three charities, the MS Society, Mind and Macmillan, which is fantastic.
For those who've asked, here's our fundraising page: www.virginmoneygiving.com/andyhouse

The flapjack's packed, bikes have been checked...here we go!
